The Bride of Newgate

(1950)
A novel by

 
 
Golden Age mystery author John Dickson Carr displays his mastery of the historical mystery in this thrilling tale of courtship and punishment in Regency-era England

To inherit her family fortune, beautiful Miss Caroline Ross must marry before her twenty-fifth birthday. But she has found only two breeds of husband: violent drunks and irresponsible dandies. To evade wedded agony, she chooses a spouse not long for this world - a convicted murderer with just a few hours left until his date with the hangman. But clever, cold-hearted Caroline does not yet realize it is her neck around which the noose is tightening and that she risks facing a life sentence far grimmer than one at Newgate jail.
